    It's Pathetic ...

    If one knows one is good enough ... One doesn't have to show off that they are good enough ... By telling others how good or charming they are ... Because these all things will show out by themselves ...

    Female Narcissists Are female narcissists

    Currently in the discard phase Yes it hurts Id

    I see a lot of people using the term narcissist

    without truly understanding the meaning behind it. It is not someone with high self esteem or just someone who is in love with themselves. It is someone who has fallen in love with an image that is not theirs and expects others to love that false image of themselves. When...

    I know a narcissist. I one time heard him say

    on the phone that he is right 99% of the time. If that isn't narcissism, I don't know what is.

    They think the world revolves around them.

    Even if something has absolutely nothing to do with them, they'll put themselves at the center. And there can never, ever be a bigger victim than a nar. They can out-victim anyone.

    Especially covert narcissists.

    I mean it's such a mindfuck when someone asks you to be their everything and support and yet he/she lacks empathy, has no real feelings, connections, or care for other people. It's such a mindfuck that a person can claim to leave everything for you, and stay stuck in their...

    Something I noticed when dealing with a

    narcissist is their tendency to forget where they put things. It's always somebody else's fault or responsibility. Projection is the name of the game. If they cannot find it, then you must have hid it somewhere. Or if they don't remember where they put it, then you have to time...

    Can anyone ever teach a Narcissists empathy?

    Or are they secretly hiding it? By leaving them, will they ever figure out the importance of learning and growing together. Could they ever appreciate what you have to offer as well? We all are subjects to learning lessons.
